Following another Premiere Week win and a top-rated fall, NBC heads into 2023 with the launch of an all-new Night Court, the debuts of dramas Found and Magnum P.I. and an extension of the world’s most successful reality format with America’s Got Talent: All-Stars.
NBC heads into midseason as the #1 network in both total viewers and 18-49 demo in overall programming as well as being #1 in the demo in entertainment-only programming.
Saturday Night Live continues its reign as the #1 entertainment program in the demo (live + 3). In live +7 viewing in the demo, NBC has the top three shows – Chicago P.D., Saturday Night Live and Chicago Fire. Quantum Leap, which was recently given a full-series order, ranks #3 in new shows this season in the demo L+7.
In total viewers, the current season of The Voice – with coaches Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, John Legend and Camila Cabello – ranks #1 for unscripted programming.
"Following another winning fall, we’re looking forward to a great January and beyond with a strong schedule that delivers on the return of many favorites coupled with fantastic new premieres", said Frances Berwick, Chairman, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "We continue to program with an eye toward a year-round schedule, constantly providing our audiences with new reasons to tune in and engage either live on NBC or stream next day on Peacock."
"We can’t wait to share these terrific new series with our audience", said Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "Found, from Greg Berlanti and Nkechi Okoro Carroll, is a stellar addition to our drama lineup while Magnum, P.I. comes to us with a passionate fanbase already in place that we intend to nourish. On the comedy side, having John Larroquette and Melissa Rauch co-star in an updated Night Court is a dream come true, and our critically acclaimed comedy American Auto is back with its hilarious and ironic look at corporate America. Add AGT: All-Stars to that mix and it’s a great start to the new year."
Launching right out of the holiday season, America’s Got Talent: All-Stars premieres Monday, Jan. 2. This new series serves as an extension of the powerhouse hit franchise, featuring winners, fan favorites and viral sensations from previous seasons of America’s Got Talent and Got Talent franchises around the world.
On Tuesday, Jan. 17, court is back in session when Night Court debuts. Melissa Rauch plays the late Harry Stone’s daughter and takes the gavel, sparring with new public defender and Night Court legend John Larroquette. A week after Night Court airs back-to-back episodes, the critically acclaimed Ana Gasteyer-starrer American Auto returns to create an hourlong Tuesday comedy block beginning Jan. 24.
Sunday, Feb. 19 will mark the premiere date for the broadcast return of Magnum, P.I. and series premiere of Found, starring Shanola Hampton and from executive producer Greg Berlanti. Magnum P.I., starring Jay Hernandez as the suave title character, will be beginning its fifth season. A week later on Feb. 26 will be the Season 10 premiere of The Blacklist, the ultra-compelling drama starring Emmy Award winner James Spader as Red Reddington.
The Voice returns March 6 with new coaches Chance the Rapper and Niall Horan alongside Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton. A day later, first-year hit That’s My Jam, with host Jimmy Fallon, returns for more games, performances and musical impressions, expanding to 10 episodes in season two.
In addition to their curated linear timeslots, all shows will be available to stream on Peacock.
Previously announced shows that have been ordered to series but not yet dated include Grand Crew, The Wheel and L.A. Fire and Rescue.

NEW COMEDY SERIES
Unapologetic optimist judge Abby Stone, the daughter of the late Harry Stone, follows in her father’s footsteps as she presides over the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court and tries to bring order to its crew of oddballs and cynics, most notably former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding.
The cast includes Melissa Rauch, John Larroquette, India de Beaufort, Kapil Talwalkar and Lacretta.
NEW DRAMA SERIES
Magnum P.I. is a modern take on the classic series centering on Thomas Magnum, a decorated former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. A charming rogue, an American hero and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum lives in a guest cottage on Robin’s Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business. The majordomo of the property is Juliet Higgins, a beautiful and commanding disavowed MI:6 agent whose second job is to keep Magnum in line, with the help of her two Dobermans. When Magnum needs back up on a job, he turns to his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors Theodore ‘TC’ Calvin, a former Marine chopper pilot who runs Island Hoppers, a helicopter tour business, and Orville Rick Wright, a former Marine door-gunner-turned-impresario of Oahu’s coolest nightclub and the most connected man on the island. With keys to a vintage Ferrari in one hand, aviator sunglasses in the other, and an Old Düsseldorf longneck chilling in the fridge, Thomas Magnum is back on the case!
The cast includes Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Zachary Knighton, Stephen Hill, Amy Hill, and Tim Kang.
In any given year, more than 600,000 people are reported missing in the U.S. More than half that number are people of color that the country seems to forget about. Public relations specialist Gabi Mosely (series star and producer Shanola Hampton) — who was once herself one of those forgotten ones — and her crisis management team now make sure there is always someone looking out for the forgotten missing people. But unbeknownst to anyone, this everyday hero is hiding a chilling secret of her own.
The cast includes Shanola Hampton, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Kelli Williams, Brett Dalton, Gabrielle Walsh, Arlen Escarpeta and Karan Oberoi.
